Ignatius Loyola/ 


Then & Now 

Through the years 



Jgnatius Loyola 

St. Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556) came from a Span- 
ish noble family. Loyola originally trained for a military life 
and had never intended on leading a religious movement. 
His life changed when his leg was shattered in battle. Dur- 
ing his recovery, Loyola spent his time reading the only books 
in the castle. These books told the life of Christ and the 

This reading inspired him to renounce all of his 
worldly goods and begin a life modeled after those saints 
who had also suffered. He became an ascetic-eating and 
sleeping very little. Loyola began deep periods of concen- 
tration. It was during this time when Loyola had a vision. 
In this vision, he was called to serve Christ. 

Loyola decided that he was to become a priest. This 
brought him to France for Christian education. He entered 
the same school as Calvin where his mind was opened to 
many new ideas. Loyola decided to form a brotherhood af- 
ter he became a priest. This order would take the vows of 
chastity, poverty, and obedience to the pope. 

On a pilgrimmage to Rome, Loyola attratcted the 
attention of Pope Paul III. He explained his mission to the 
pope and won his approval to begin the Society of Jesus in 
1540. They became known as the Jesuits. By 1556, this 
order had grown from ten to over a thousand. 

The Jesuits pledged to serve everywhere in the world. 
They converted people in Japan and India, as well as the 
Native Americans in the New World. Loyola was dedicated 
to education and founded many schools and seminaries. 
Ignatius Loyola lived to see nearly a hundred Jesuit colleges 
and seminaries. He died while in , '-aver.

The History of Loyola 


Loyola University in New Orleans began when seven Jesuit priests from 
France were asked to come to New Orleans and establish a Jesuit college. They 
came in 1837 and bought a piece of land in St. Landry Parish. They decided 
that this would be a better sight for their boarding college than in the actual 
city of New Orleans. 

In 1847, the Jesuits bought the land located at the corner of Baronne 
and Common Streets, or what is now known as Canal Street. Two years later, 
the College of the Immaculate Conception opened its doors there. The rapid 
growth of the city prompted Rev. John O'Shanahan, S.J., superior general of 
the province, to look for a new site. 

By 1884, the uptown area had become more developed due to the Cot- 
ton Centennial Exposition. This area ran from Lee Circle to the City of 
Carrollton. A large piece of land across from Audubon park, the F. Goucher 
Plantation, was for sale. It included what is now Loyola and Tulane Universi- 
ties, Sophie Newcomb College and Audubon Place. Rev. O'Shanahan bought 
part of the property that ran from the front of St. Charles to the Claiborne Ca- 
nal in 1886. He paid $22,500 in three installments at six percent interest. 

In 1904, Loyola College, along with a preparatory academy opened its 
doors for the first time. The first classes were held in what is today Marquette 
Hall, which was built in 1910. The first president was the Rev. Albert Biever, 
S.J.. In 1912, Loyola College became Loyola University. 

Loyola continued to grow. In 1912, Thomas Hall, home of the priests 
was constructed. The School of Dentistry joined the university in 1914 and 
remained until it was gradually phased out from 1968-1971. The School of 
Law was established in 1914. In 1919, a new college, the New Orleans College 
of Pharmacy, became a part of the university until 1965 when it was discon- 
tinued. The College of Music originated in 1932, and the College of Business 
Administration in 1947. 

The growth of Loyola, academically, also sparked growth in the area of 
sports. It was here at Loyola that the first collegiate night game was played. 
Several Olympic and national champions have attended Loyola and played 
on the teams here. In 1972, intercollegiate athletics were discontinued. 

In 1964, Biever Hall and the student Danna Center were added to the 
Loyola campus, Buddig Hall followed in 1967. The J. Edgar Monroe Memo- 
rial Science Building was completed in 1969. It was in 1984 that the Broadway 
campus was purchased from St. Mary's Dominican College, where the School 
of Law and the Law Library are now located . In 1986, the Communications/ 
Music Building was constructed. It was just a couple of years later that the 
Recreation Sports Complex was opened. Loyola acquired its latest addition 
in 1993 when the old Mercy Academy was purchased.

The Broadway 
Campus was pur- 
chased by Loyola Uni- 
versity in 1984. The 
campus was formerly 
St. Mary's Academy, a 
school established for 
girls in 1861. The 
Academy was founded 
by Dominican nuns 
from Cabra, Ireland. 
In 19 10, the school be- 
came St. Mary's Do- 
minican College. 
Today the Broadway 
Campus houses stu- 
dents of Loyola's Law 
School and Visual Arts 
Greenville Hall and the 
upperclassmen dorm, 
Cabra Hall is located 
there. Cabra Hall is 
named after Cabra, 
Ireland, where the vi- 
sions for the academy 
first arose. Greenville 
Hall is a historic land- 
mark built in 1882. It 
is now used for a vari- 
ety of university of- 
fices such as alumni 
relations and univer- 
sity relations. The 
Broadway Campus re- 
mains an integral part 
of the Loyola commu-

The Jesuits have been known for their dedica- 
tion to education as well as for their faith. They have 
helped to establish many fine institutions for the ad- 
vancement of learning all around the world. They fol- 
low the tradition of excellence originated by Ignatius 

Loyola was a Spanish nobleman and former 
soldier in the 16th century. While he was recovering 
from battle wounds in 1521, he experienced a religious 
vision, similar to the one that transformed Martin 
Luther. Loyola then became a wandering pilgrim, a 
self styled religious teacher, and the author of Spiri- 
tual Exercises , a work of great psychological insight 
and Christian inspiration. In 1524 he launched his So- 
ciety of Jesus (Jesuits) at the University of Paris; 16 years 
later Pope Paul gave it official authorization. 

The Jesuits were among the earliest settlers of 
New Orleans and Louisiana. They are credited with 
introducing the growing of sugar cane to Louisiana, 
paving the way for one of the states prime industries. 
In 1725, Jesuit fathers purchased a plantation from 
former Governor Bienville where sugar cane was 
planted. This tract, used as a staging area or supply 
base for their activities in ministering to the needs of 
settlers and Indians in the up country, was located on 
what is now Canal Street extending to about Jackson 
Avenue. When the Jesuit order was banned from the 
French colonies in 1763, the land was sold at a public 

In 1884, Rev. John O'Shanahan, S.J., who was 
the superior general of the providence, began to look 
for a suburban site to found a Jesuit college. 
O'Shanahan was offered by the Mayor of New Orleans' 
the entire Foucher Plantation for $75,000. The planta- 
tion included the land now occupied by Lovola and 
Tulane Universities, Sophie Newcomb College and 
Audubon Place. However, O'Shanahan turned down 
the entire tract and in 1886, he bought a section of the 
plantation for $22,500 which fronted St. Charles Street 
and ran to the Claiborne Canal. In 1904 Loyola opened 
it's doors.

T hen & Now 

A A Student's Perspective 

My palms are sweating, my heart is pounding. I'm filled with fear. It's my first day at Loyola University. 
So many questions run through my mind. Who will I sit with at lunch? Will I be happy here? Where are the 

bathrooms in Monroe Hall? 

It seems as though not much time has passed since that day, and yet I now feel so different. Loyola has 
earned a special place in my heart and has become a place where I feel safe, supported and free to be myself. 

Through my friendships at Loyola. I've experienced a community that has encouraged me to stand up for 
my beliefs without fearing ridicule. It has taught me the true meaning of a leader and the responsibility to guard the 
interests and the rights of those who follow. 

These friendships have also given me countless memories that I will take with me as I leave Loyola. 1 will 
cherish the lunches in the Pub and hanging out in the Peace Quad. I will never forget the late night chats and pizza 
parties with my fourth floor residents in Buddig Hall. When the new library is finished, it will serve as a monument 
to the mornings I was awakened by the poundings of the piling drivers. But mostly I'll hold dear the smiles of my 
classmates, the encouragement of my professors, and the feeling of being pnveleged to be a part of Loyola Umver-

year was a year of excitement, great expectations and 
desire to realize my full potential. As the years pro 
gressed, I learned a great deal about myself, the world 
around me and others. My senior year is a year of 
ending and of new beginnings. I look forward to thes

more knowledge."

Many students may not realize how 
very similar their professors are to them. 
On this path of surprises and new 
experiences, we call "life," there is also 
the neverending process of learning. Pro- 
fessors have had their share of excruciat- 
ing study hours and now stand before us 
in class with their acclaimed knowledge. 
Yet, they still learn a new thing or two as 
they explore the path to life. 

A student may perhaps bring up a 
question in class that the professor had 
not thought of before and have to "get 
back" to the student on that one. 

Professors also discover new informa- 
tion while doing research and publish- 
ing. Professors, like some students, are 
rather eager about learning more and 
becoming the cutting edge of their field.

Also, besides continuing their education, proffesors become involved with other 
activities related to school. They may act as chair of their department, advise an 
organization or just take out the time to speak with a student about their resume or 
future plans. Therefore, professors can relate to students, beyond their teaching 

And even on Graduation Day, students see their professors in cap mand gown, as 
they "do the walk." Another reminder that professors, like students, are a part of the 
neverending Circle of Knowledge.

Professors Horton and O'Neill have at least one thing in 
common. They both like to write. 

Last summer, English Professor Andrew Horton released 
his book Bones in the Sea: Time Apart on a Greek Island, based on his 
travels. But, Horton's passion for writing is not limited to just 
these paperbound publishings. Horton also co-wrote the screen- 
play Dark Side of the Sun, featuring actor Brad Pitt. Horton had 
three screenplays produced into films; Something in Between (first) 
and Virginia. 

Professor of drama and speech, Rosary O'Neill has re- 
ceived a number of writing fellowships and other honors for her 
pieces. Last year, the Southern Repertory Theatre cast from New 
Orleans perormed her play Wishing Aces in Paris. She also co- 
chaired the symposium Southern Theatre at the End of the Millenium.

Julia McSherry has been the director of publications at 
Loyola since 1990. During that time, she has worked to rede- 
sign the publications office to better serve the university. 
Under her direction, the department has become proactive in 
its approach, "establishing standards, systems and procedures 
by which the publications of the university, from the admis- 
sions catalogues to the alumni magazine, reflect the true 
quality and character of the university," wrote Joseph J. 
Mansfield, vice president of Institutional Advancement in 
recommending McSherry. 

Her most recent achievement was the direction of the 
redesign of the university's graphic identity and creation of a 
unified image for all publications and visual images of Loyola, 
be it advertising, publications, film, or signage. In addition, she 
has coordinated the establishment of the university's public 
image on the web page which received approximately 20,000 
hits a month after only three months in service and continues 
to grow each month. 

McSherry earned her bachelor of arts degree in English 
from Louisiana State University and has won numerous 
writing and publishing awards.

ains, students purchase their textbooks and other 
jlies at the bookstore, on the main level, or can go 
ugh the Student Government's book exchange, lo-

Sociology Senior 

As freshmen, the world 
is, as sophmores we can 
do anything with the 
world, as juinors the 
world has too many 
options, and as seniors 
anything is possible. 
Trang has found out 
that even thou any- 
thing is possible that 
doesn't make it easy. 
Having spent the entire 
four vears of her college 
carrer here she is facing 
the move to graduate 
school with both anxi- 
ety and joy. For Trang 
some of her best 
experrnces have taken 
place during her four 
vears her. She has 
made close friendships 
and is one of the few 
people I know of who 
has enjoyed living in the 
resident halls. She has 
no regrets about choos- 
ing Loyola and feels 
that she will always be 
able to look back on her 
experince with fondness 
in her heart.

the Way 

As we walk around campus many of us have noticed that there have been changes. One of 
best changes has been the improvement of the art gallery. Never in the last three years, has 
ola seen such a string of successful art gallery openings. This can be attributed to the hard work 
reative genius Angela Driscoll. Driscoll decided to come to Loyola because she wanted a change, 
wanted to go somewhere exciting, yet familiar. She chose Loyola because it was a school that 
similar methods of teachings and philosophies as her Catholic high school. 

After two years of college, Driscoll seems ready to take on the world. She said it's not about 
'ther she would be satisfied somewhere else, but what she can do to make Loyola a better place. 

As Visual Perspectives Chairwoman for LIPB, Driscoll has begun to do her share to make 
via a better place — one art show at a time.

Throughout the 1996-97 school year, Loyola's campus underwent a lot of 
changes. Parking lots were transformed into green space and a parking garage 
was constructed. 

Flags along St. Charles Avenue and Loyola's campus promoted a capital 
campaign, "Thresholds: The Campaign for Loyola University New Orleans." 
The campaign was an effort to raise $50 million for the new library, salaries for 
faculty and staff, and student scholarships. 

The campaign consisted of three phases in order to generate these funds. 
Private donations from alumni and the board of trustees, were collected during the silent phase. The next 
phase involved pledges from faculty and staff members. 

And in late November, Loyola launched the public phase by celebrating the breaking of ground for the 
J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library. The ceremony took place in Miller Hall's parking lot, the site of the 
future library. Those who attended included University President, the Reverend Bernard P. Knoth, S.J. and 
University Chancellor, the Reverend James C. Carter, S.J., as well as board of trustee members, Lindy Boggs, 
and Robert Monroe. 

The new library is expected to be completed by 1998. More computer access and a literacy center will 
be among many features the new library will hold.

lots were transformed into new quads.

Loyola has anxiously awaited the opening of its new parking garage for 
well over a year. We had endured the sounds of the daily hammerings and drillings, 
as well as the sight of the plies of rubble and construction materials on the Peace 

It was hard to imagine that amongst all of this, a parking garage would soon 

And so it did on November 4th. The West Road Parking Garage was opened. 
It had the looks of Bobet Hall and contained four floors that were open to Loyola 
faculty members and students holding a parking permit. 

The new garage was part of a plan by University President Reverend 
Bernard Knoth, S.J. to add more "green space" to the campus. 

The garage has replaced the parking spaces of Monroe, Buddig and Bobet Halls as they became 
transformed into landscaped areas.

Living in New Orleans is truly a unique experience. Home of jazz, the Saints, 
and the muddy Mississippi, the city has a lot to offer to both visitors and resi- 
dents alike. 

When students first arrive from out of town at Loyola, one of the first 
glimpses they will get of New Orleans is St. Charles Avenue. Lined with leafy 
trees and picturesque homes, St. Charles Avenue is one of the most scenic parts 
of the city. The beauty of Audubon Park also adds to the avenue's ambiance. 
If you take the streetcar all the way down St. Charles, you will arrive down- 
town, where many of New Orleans' most famous landmarks are located. Lee Circle, the Aquarium of the 
Americas, and the Superdome are just a few of downtown's many offerings. 

The most well-known part of New Orleans would have to be the French Quarter. There are a countless 
number of places to go to in the Quarter, but some of the more popular are the French Market, Pat O Brien's, 
and Cafe du Monde. 

One thing to remember when in New Orleans is not to limit yourself to any one location. There's lots to 
see in the Big Easy; if you blink, you might miss a part of it.

Many students look forward to going off to college, living in a dormitory 
and partying. The dorms offer students a place to live and give many the chance 
to make new friends. Students are free to do whatever they want to without 
having to worry about their parents' watchful eye. There are always people who 
can help you out with any class. Also, being located on campus offers easy access to classes and activities. 

However, dorm life is not always what it is cracked up to be. Psychology pre-med sophomore Christina 
Hunter said, "Living in the dorm has both positive and negative aspects. As an out-of-state student, dorm 
life helps me from missing my family so much, because I'm surrounded by most of my close friends. How- 
ever, dorm life can be bad when you don't get along with everyone you live with and you know you have to 
be around those people all year." 

With all of the pros and cons carefully considered, it is no wonder why students find a reason to visit 
home or go partying. It seems that the only way to survive residential life is to roll with the punches.

River Ridge, Metairie, New Orleans, and the Westbank— Loyola has commut- 
ers coming from all directions. From parking tickets to morning traffic, a commuter's 
life can be especially difficult. 

Residents may not understand the reluctance of commuters to get involved 
in student life, but commuters already feel pressed for time, running to and from home. It takes some getting 
used to, but commuters eventually learn to combine their academic and social lives. 

One of the first things to learn as a commmuter is to not take an 8:30 class, because it's just a license for 
tardiness. Another hint: if the President is in town, leave early and still anticipate traffic! Nothing can slow 
down a commuter more than a nosy person driving five miles an hour trying to see every little thing going 

Also, if a commuter decides to drive home on Tchoupitoulas at night, watch out for those people who 
either look like Freddy Kreuger or the Candyman stepping out into the middle of the street.

is out 

Cozy chill spots on Loyola's campus are as diverse as the students who 
occupy them. While most students prefer the ever-changing outdoor atmo- 
sphere, others opt for quiet study chambers such as the St. Charles Room. 
Freshman Ryan Holmes describes the Wolf Den, which is located in the base- 
ment of the Danna Center as, "the perfect combination of excitement and re- 

Other Wolfpack favorites include the Orleans Room, the Wolf Pub, and 
the Peace Quad, located between Bobet Hall and the Danna Center. However, 
some campus hot spots aren't so heavily populated. According to freshman 
Nancy Wood, "The best place to chill is in my room with my friends. My room 
has everything I need."

Popular hang-outs for Loyola students extend past the boundaries of St. 
Charles Avenue and Freret Street. After a hard day of hitting the books, many 
students head to the numerous coffee houses in the Uptown area. PJ's on Maple 
Street is freshman Jason Cousins' preferred after school hideaway, and fresh- 
man Chris Vo cites Audubon Park as the best place to go "if you're looking to 
run away from the worries in your life." 

On the weekends, students choose local clubs such as Rendon Inn and 
Waldo's to release stress from the previous week. Metairie's Channel Club and 
local cinemas are other outlets to have a good time and see a few familiar faces. 
When it comes to having fun, the Wolfpack knows where it's at!

Places to eat 

while on 


Variety is the spice of life, and Loyola has a definite variety when it comes 
to food services. They provide students with food for every meal of the day 
including those little snacks. 

P.J.'s Coffee, located in the Danna Center, is perfect for grabbing a quick 
bite to eat for those rushed mornings. The muffins, rolls, and cookies are always 
fresh and the variety of coffee flavors help students find that get-up-and-go to 
help them through class and late night cramming. 

Pizza Hut, also located in the Danna Center, offers students a slice of Italy and is enjoyed by many for 
lunch or dinner. The small convenience store in the front is visited by many to purchase the necessary drinks 
and chips to satisfy a sudden attack of the munchies. 

Taco Bell, in the Danna Center as well, serves up a few of their famous Tex-Mex dishes such as tacos 
and burritos. For those wanting something on the light side, taco salads are a big hit. 

The Orleans Room, found in the Danna Center, provides hot meals to students for breakfast, lunch, 
and dinner. Eggs, hamburgers, and red beans and rice are just a few examples of the meals served in the O.R. 
The Wolf Pub, found in the basement of the Danna Center, provides students with an excellent place 
to purchase a sandwich made right on the spot. Foods, such as soups and pretzels are also available. 

The Pine Street Cafe & Pub, located on the Broadway Campus, serves up such goodies as doughnuts, 
hamburgers and french fries. While not on the main campus, this food service caters mainly to the law and 
art students on the Broadway Campus. 

When asked what he thought about the food services that are on campus, Deon Roberts, a Graphic 

Arts major, replied "I like the selections and, unlike high school, the food is edible." 

Some students love the food, but don't particularly like the high cost. 

" The food is excellent, but it is extraordinarily expensive." said George Voulgarakis, computer science 

major. Despite the price, most students seem to enjoy the food and don't mind paying for a good, hot meal. 

So, if ever you get a craving for some pizza or soup, consider all of the food services that are right here 

on campus. Just get together with a group of your friends and let the good times roll.

Women Take 

Back the 


"Women Take Back the Night" is an annual tradition at Loyola. Men, women, | 
and children alike participate in the march to support the survivors of rape and I! 
violence, as well as to raise awareness in the hopes of preventing it in the future. 

Symbolism was abundant throughout the entire march. Candles were lit , 
and carried by the walkers to bring light to the often ignored issue. A bell was ij 
rung every fifteen seconds as a reminder that an act of violence against women tl 
occurs that often. 

Beginning in Loyola's horseshoe, survivors put innocent faces on the impersonal numbers forcing the 
somber reality; it could happen to anybody. Candle-bearing supporters marched down St. Charles Avenue 
and on to Tulane University's campus. At Tulane's Pocket Park, volunteers from the crowd were invited to j 
share their own stories and experiences with everyone. The march ended with personal committments to j 
take back the night. 
-Mike Giusti 

Above: Marguerite Ross offers support to a fellow marcher. 





National Collegiate Health and Wellness Week gave students and faculty a 
chance to paint t-shirts as a symbol of their personal struggles with violence. The 
shirts were part of The Clothesline Project sponsored by the Counseling, Career 
Development and Placement Center. 
The project, a campaign against violence towards women, went on display in the Orleans Room 
ounge on Wednesday, March 5, 1997. The shirts displayed pictures and words representing the pain 
dolence brings to our community, and the project set out to "air society's dirty laundry." 

Each color on the shirts represented a different form of violence: white for women who have died as 
i result of violence; red, pink or orange for women who were sexually abused or raped; yellow, beige or brown 
or battered or assaulted women; blue or green for survivors of childhood incest or sexual abuse; purple or 
avender for women who have been battered because they were lesbians; and black for survivors of gang rape. 
Women's studies groups, sororities including Alpha Chi Omega, and other campus groups also 
ontributed to the program and to making the community aware of the depth of the problem of violence in 
>ur society.

Day unites 


cultures at 


Country Day is an annual festival at Loyola which makes students feel spe- 
cial by celebrating cultural differences. On October 25, booths which displayed 
exhibits of different countries and samples of ethnic foods were set up in the 
Danna Center Lounge. Live music was performed by Casa Samba, a local Bra- 
zilian band that featured Carnival music and an exciting dance show. There 
was also a raffle contest to educate students about different countries. Winners 
were randomly selected among students who correctly answered the questions. 
They received gift certificates donated by local restaurants. Country Day was 
sponsored by the following organizations: International Student Association 
(ISA), Spanish American Law Student Association (SALSA), and University Pro- 
gramming Board (UPB).

This year, the Loyola Asian Student Organization sailed with its sails high. 
LASO began the year with many new recruits. Everyone boarded ship with fresh 
ideas and a winning attitude. 

Unity has been the key to the club's success. To celebrate, LASO hosted a 
Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. Everyone brought a dish and celebrated Thanks- 
giving LASO style. All members had a spectacular time singing karaoke, eating 
dinner, and just being TOGETHER. 

After a semester of smooth sailing, the Potluck Dinner gave everyone one last 
opportunity to relax before finals.

Public Safety 

The life of a college student is never easy; a printer that won't print out a 

paper ten minutes before it's due, a demagnetized copy card, and a tainted burger 

from the O.K. are just a few problems that can complicate daily life at Loyola. But 

sometimes students are faced with problems of greater concern, such as stolen 

T m/nlri n property and minor acts of violence on campus. This is where Public Safety 

LUyUlU U comes into the picture. 

Day and night, Public Safety patrols the grounds of Loyola by foot, bicycle 
or the patrol cart in order to ensure campus safety. They are responsible for 
guarding social events, monitoring on-campus traffic and escorting students back to their rooms late at night. 
This year, they dealt with problems ranging from prank callers in the residence halls to discovering cocaine 
in Miller Hall. Whatever the problem may be, Public Safety is always available to provide students with 
protection, assistance and a sense of security.

The Pub was decorated with memorabilia from the disco era, including a 
mirror ball, and posters reminiscent of "Welcome Back Kotter," The Village People, 
and other 70's/80's faves. Music ranged from the Bee Gees to Vanilla Ice, while 
dances ranged from breakdancing to a couple of John Travolta's favorite moves. 
Needless to say, a good time was had by all.

The 1996 presidential elections held students' interest for the first half of the 
fall semester. 
CYinvlfC ^ ne Republicans, after a vicious primary battle, chose senator and World War 

r II veteran Bob Dole. Dole survived challenges form Pat Buchanan, Steve Forbes, 

and Phil Gramm. 

Dole surprised many by choosing former L.A. Ram and long time enemv Jack 

Kemp as his running mate. The congressman's selection was followed by a flood 

of football analogies, but could not save the flagging campaign. 

Ross Perot flooded the airwaves with half-hour infomercials attacking both sides. While the assault did 

not win the election, the Reform Party recieved enough votes to qualify for federal campaign funds for the 

first time. 

President Bill Clinton survived the attacks and personal scandals to become the first Democrat re-elected 
Presidents since Franklin D. Roosevelt. Clinton's ever-present "bridge to the Twenty-first Centurv" will last 
into the Twenty-first century for twenty days. On January 20, 2001, the next president will be inaugerated.

All around campus, work-study students can be found performing their 
job duties, earning tuition money. Work-study jobs are obtained by students 
receiving financial aid. Students are usually given a job that pertains to their 

Office workers perform such duties as filing, answering telephones, copy- 
ing documents or running small errands. Tutoring jobs also consist of some of- 
fice duties, as well as mentoring students through difficult subjects. Computer 
lab jobs consist of assisting students who have problems using the equipment, 
keeping the lab clean and handling maintenance of equipment; such as restock- 
ing paper and ink cartridges and dealing with mechanical failures. 
Many work-study students feel their jobs are very beneficial because they can earn money for their 
tuition without having to pay out of their own pockets. Because work-study is not as demanding as a regu- 
lar nine-to-five job, most students have no problem balancing school and work-study. However, some stu- 
dent workers admit that working hours are not fun and games. Roberto Matthews, music education fresman 
comments, "Priorities are a must. The job comes first and homework comes in your spare time." 

Work-study has many other positive aspects, such as acquiring job experience, interacting with oth- 
ers, and offering service to the Loyola community. But no matter what, the work-study students are the ones 
who benefit the most from their jobs.

In response to student suggestions, the Wolf Den and Student Activities 
hosted a series of game tournaments. Teams and individual players competed in 
spades, ping pong, and pool. These tournaments were held to generate publicity 
about all that the Wolf Den has to offer, in hopes of attracting new students. The 
tournaments were a success and will be continued as long as interest remains 

"I was surprised and excited by the turnout and success of the tourna- 
ments. I feel like my hard work paid off and I hope some of the tournament 
players will become regulars. I advertised on Campus Vision and in all the

Thirty -first 


Bowl held 

in New 



After months of preparing, Super Bowl XXXI finally arrived in New Or- 
leans on January 26, 1997. The Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots 
were ready to go head to head in the Superdome. The game started off good for 
the Packers,with a touchdown early in the first quarter. By the second quarter, a 
battle to untie the score and keep it that way, was in progress. At the end of the 
third quarter, the Packers were ahead by one touchdown; 28-21. The Packers held 
their lead and scored another touchdown in the fourth quarter bringing the final 
score to 35 - 21. 

The half time show could have been a major event in itself. The Blues 

Brothers, James Brown, and ZZ Top provided the music. Local high school dance 

teams were also stars in the Dome that night. Pyrotechnics and multiple Harley 

Davidson's drivers by local riders added to the elaborate display. 

Besides the game itself, the Super Bowl brought different functions to New Orleans that weekend. Fans 

attended tailgate parties, outdoor concerts and various workshops on football. Charity dinners and events 

were also held to benefit both local and national organizations.

A New 



For almost 300 years New Orleans has celebrated carnival in its streets. 
Beginning in 1699, when a group of French explorers carried on the tradition by 
throwing a party for Fat Tuesday 60 miles south of what is now New Orleans, 
Mardi Gras has blossomed into a world wide party 

Since the first celebration in New Orleans, Mardi Gras in the Big Easy has 
take on a life of its own, boasting ornate floats, elegant masquerade balls and of 
course, beads. 

A week and a half before the advent of Lent, Loyola students, New Orleanians and thousands of 
people from across the country and around the world converge in New Orleans with one goal in mind, to 
have fun. 

The streets are always packed with people trying to catch a glimpse of Rex, Zulu, Bacchus, and all the 
rest of the parades that roll during carnival. A mysterious insanity encompasses the crowds, as they are 
ready and willing to do anything and everything for virtually worthless beads. 

As many holidays fall to the entrapments of commercialism, Mardi Gras remains the most pure form 
of celebration. Carnival is about pleasure and fun, and fun cannot be bought. Mardi Gras is for everyone; 
the young, the old, the rich, the poor can all enjoy the simple pleasures of Fat Tuesday.

A once in a lifetime opportunity. This is how many Loyola faculty and 
students described the visit of Mikhail Gorbachev, the former president of the 
Soviet Union. Some students and faculty stood in line for more than two hours 
for tickets. However, it was well worth the wait. The distinguished leader 
impressed many Loyola students by addressing issues specifically concerning 
young people today. The environment was a major topic of his lecture. He 
encouraged young people to begin thinking of the environment now because it 
will, in his opinion, be the major global issue of the 21st century. He surprised 
many by addressing such controversial problems as population control and NATO, and he voiced some 
criticism of the laissez-faire economics of the United States. While some disagreed with some of Gorbachev's 
points, they nevertheless welcomed the opportunity to hear the opinions of one of the most prolific leaders 
of the 20th century.

On Saturday, April 12th, many enjoyed Loyola's annual party aboard the 
Natchez Riverboat. This year's theme was "La Lune Cajun." 

People were scattered throughout the three decks of the ship drinking, 
dancing, socializing, and eating. On the first deck, a jazz band entertained, and 
on the second deck there was a DJ playing dance music. 

It was a cool night, so most people remained inside for most of the party. 
A few people braved the unusually chilly weather and spent some time outside 
enjoying the scenery, as the boat cruised up and down the Mississippi River.

of Christmas. 

For many, one of the most poignant memories of Christmas at Loyola was 
the Tree-Lighting Ceremony in front of Marquette Hall. Students, faculty, family 
and friends gathered in the horseshoe for cookies, carols, and Christmas cheer. 
The event gave students a chance to take a break from tedious hours of studying 
and to get into the Christmas spirit.

On April 22, 1997, the Loyola Asian Student Organization (LASO) celebrated 
its most successful year at its annual banquet. 

Members met at Nine Roses Restaurant to celebrate being a team. Despite 
small numbers, LASO proved that one drop of water could make many waves. 

LASO had many firsts this year: the first t-shirt design, the Date Auction, the 
Intercollegiate Formal and the LASO Immaculate Heart of Mary Mentor Program. 

The banquet wrapped up the year with awards, dinner and a slide show. 
Most importantly, the banquet celebrated being together.

School spirit is an important part of a school's atmosphere. Spirit helps 
increase the student's morale and gives them a sense of pride in their school. 
Spirit also unites students as one body to support a cause or event. 

There are many examples of spirit on Loyola's campus. For instance, 
people wear school clothing and buy other Loyola items to show their support. 
People also attend sports events in the Rec Plex and cheer on their team. Special 
events, such as pep rallies and school sponsored events, also offer students a 
chance to show their spirit. Another way in which students express their school 
spirit is by joining the various clubs and organizations on campus. 

However, some students feel that the amount of spirit found around campus could be higher. 
"School spirit could be improved by having more school sponsored events," said Alicia Pruitt, criminal 
justice freshman. Students like Pruitt feel that the school should schedule even more events and advertise 
them in places where more students will easily see them.

t i Juniors Allyson Smith and Tirrell Washington met at Leadership Orienta- 

j/ ti° n during their freshman year. 

They started dating in their sophomore year. The next year they casually 
talked about plans for the future and spending the rest of their lives together. 
"We knew we were going to marry each other," said Smith. 

In March of 1997 it became official. He surprised her with a stuffed rabbit 
and the ring, at her workplace. 

Even though the couple won't be married until December of 1998, they are 
already making plans now because they are expecting 350 people to attend the wedding in New Orleans. 

After they graduate, the couple plans to move to either Michigan or Ohio, where Washington will 
pursue his doctorate in creative writing. Eventually, they would like to move back to New Orleans.

Students ' 

study habits 

vary from 

person to 


They can be found almost anywhere on campus; students sitting at desks in 
the library, the St. Charles room ,curled up in chairs in the Danna Center and 
sprawled across the grass in the quad. They all have one thing in common: the 
focused, sometimes frantic look of intense studying. 

Loyola students have a nearly endless variety of "sure fire" study methods. 
Some students must be outside, while others may wrap themselves in blankets. 
Some use cold air to keep awake, while others crank the thermostat past ninety 
degrees. Jason Steinle, a English literature freshman, and Fritz Esker, communi- 
cations freshman, are friends, but their study habits are utterly incompatible. 
"I always go to my computer room at home to study or write essays," says 
Esker. "I can't study without the television or radio on; it gets too quiet." 

Steinle says, "I study in different places, depending on the day. Tuesdays and Thursdays I stay up in my 
dorm room; other days I go to the library. I need to be alone and have total quiet to study." 

Many students say that they study better with each other students helping, or at least near by. Virgina 
Burmeister, biology pre-med freshman, says, "I like to study in the St. Charles Room because that's where 
everybody studies. I see other students studying and it helps my concentration. It's sort of comforting." 
Some students, like visual arts sophomore Richard Landry, take a more blase' view of studying. 
"I study in the Danna Center lounge with my friends," Landry says, "but I only study for a test right 
before the class it's in. Then I forget what I studied. That's pretty much the way it's always worked." 
Better last minute cramming than none at all, as Charlotte Tebbe, education freshman, says. 
"I don't study at all. That's my problem," Tebbe says.

Loyola University provides free Internet and e-mail access for all of its 
students. Many have put this privilege to good use. It is not an uncommon 
occurrence to walk into the Main Library or Microcomputer Lab and find every 
terminal occupied. Many students are left waiting until someone reluctantly give 
up their spot. This service has offered students the opportunity to stay in contact 
with fellow students at other universities in Louisiana and across the country. The 
post office, or "snail mail" as some call it, is the thing of the past. Loyola is part of 
the information society. Plenty of students are also enjoying a new way to keep in 
contact with students right on campus. After all, it is hard to keep in contact with 
a few thousand students. Some students have yet to enjoy the e-mail experience. 
Personal e-mail addresses are easy to obtain just by riding up five flights in Monroe 
Hall. To some, e-mail is another form of communication, and for others, it is an 
obsession. It is not hard to find a friend who cannot be pulled away from a 
computer, but for most of us, it is an inexpensive and easy way to keep in close 
contact with friends.

Art classes 

on the 



St. Mary's Visual Arts Building, located on the Broadway Campus, is where 
all studio art classes are taught. Drawing, painting, ceramics classes are not just 
for art majors and minors; any student can take them. The classes range from 
basic - Foundations I - to complex - Advanced Computer-based Imaging. The 
wide range of classes supplies Art students with the well-rounded background 
they need to be successful. 

Teachers at the Visual Arts school respect and support their students' inter- 
pretations of life that are reflected in their pieces. This respect makes the stu- 
dents feel like their work is important. 

"The teachers don't see us as students, but as peers. They treat us and our art work like they would an 
experienced artist," said Valeria Kremser, visual arts freshman

of the City 


Anyone can receive an excellent education at Loyola, even someone who 
does not have the time to attend Day Division classes. For those who have other 
responsibilities during the day such as work, or taking care of children, City Col- 
lege provides a way for them to get a college education during their free time. 

Many City College students already have their careers and are looking for 
advancement. Others decide to go back to school after many years and find that 
City College offers them a schedule of classes that accommodate their needs. Some students at City College 
are actually Day Division students taking night classes because those are the only ones offered in their major 
and /or minor or they may just be interested in expanding their horizons. 

There is a friendly and down-to-earth atmosphere at City College. This is due to the professors who 
understand the great effort the students are making to achieve their goals and how difficult it is to work full- 
time jobs, support a family, and find the time to go to college. 

City College offers Bachelor degrees in the Applied Sciences, Criminal Justice, Liberal Studies, and 
Nursing. Most classes are offered at night and some during the weekends.

SG A Leads the Pack 

There is a group of people on campus that everyone knows about, but most never see at work. They do many things— often quietly, 
lese dedicated students comprise what is known as the Student Government Association. 

The purpose of this elected body is to promote and protect student rights. SGA also determines, clarifies, and enunciates student 
ilicies and opinions to the university community. 

President Lee Reid, first year law student, took the reins during the fall of 1996, with the assistance of Vice President junior Kevin 
isey, and the rest of the SGA. 

Many were in favor of SGA's actions this year. Sophomore Pascal Dupuy said, "It seems that they did their job." 

Agreeably so, this year SGA agreed to a 3.39% tuition increase— the lowest in years. SGA also sponsored many activities heavily 
:ended by the general population of Loyola. 

Whatever the general consensus, good or bad, productive or not, SGA will continue to do their work: to keep things running 
Loothly and most of all, to make things better for the student body. 

Next year, Kevin Casey will take over as president and Huy Vu jumps into the spot of vice president.

UPB Makes Loyola Laugh 

The University Programming Board was created to program educational, cultural, social and recreational events for the 
jyola community. Some of the events that UPB planned for the 1996-1997 school year included the UPB Comedy Hour, the 
[urder Mystery Dinner Theater, dances, concerts, and movies. 

UPB tries to foster a sense of community at Loyola and facilitate a spirit of cooperation, awareness, and appreciation of 
versify among students, staff, faculty, alumni, and guests of Loyola. 

The Murder Mystery Dinner Theater was presented by an acting troupe called Mysteries on Campus. They involved 
any Loyola students in their production, including a young lady having a birthday and another young sophomore. After the 
letectives" recanted the facts of the mystery, the audience had to figure out who the murderer was. In other words: 
'hodunnit. The play had a lot of comical aspects to it as well. 

UPB also sponsored a Comedy Hour in the Wolf Pub. The Comedy Hour was a fun evening to share with friends after 
nner. UPB also provided egg rolls and other snack items for the audience to enjoy as they laughed along.

Whether small or large it's the oraganizations on Loyola's campus which really make a diffrence. 


The Wolf started long ago, as a means of helping students capture the college j 
experience. And despite periodic gaps, the Wolf has been successful. The Wolf 
continues to capture many special Loyola moments. 

Watch out — Wolf on the prowl!

Don Moreau 
Head Coach 

Brett Simpson 
Assistant Coach 

Loyola's Wolf pack Baseball challenged eight NCAA Division I opponents this year. The 
inaugural Pelican State Tournament presented the team with competition from LSU-Shreveport, 
Nicholls State and McNeese State. After partying for Mardi Gras, it was back to work for the team— 
pitchin' some fast ones and slidin' into more winning games. They played Alcorn State before facing 
William Carey as the first of the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Teams. All the team's home games are 
held at the Wesley Barrow Stadium, on the Lakefront. 

The Wolfpack is led by Head Coach Don Moreau, Moreau has held several honors. He was 
named American Legion Second District Eastern Division Coach of the year twice, and also College 
Baseball Coach of the Year, in 1996. Moreau was educated at Jesuit High School in New Orleans and 
then at Tulane University. 

Moreau's assistant coach Brett Simpson graduated from Loyola in May 1996, with a 
Communications degree. Simpson set many records during his years as a "solid" hitter and 
defensive outfielder on the team. Now, he is in charge of the outfielders, baserunning and scouting 
for the Wolfpac 

(compiled from the 1997 Baseball Handbook) 




The windup for the great pitch. Make it strike three. 

Wolfpack players relax and watch from the 
sideline. The team spent a lot of time on the 
road, traveling to other schools for a challenge.
